xmasfair

At St Dionis Mission Hall, 18a Parson’s Green, SW6 4UH

Saturday December 1st 2012, 2pm – 8pm
Sponsored by Aspire, Apple Green Duck & Cupcake

The first day of Christmas Fair is a new and unique, boutique Christmas event, in the festive heart of Parsons Green.

Inspired by the traditional Christmas fairs of Europe, we will bring together families and friends to sip mulled wine and hot chocolate to the tunes of a brass band; give you the chance to buy beautiful, uniquely crafted Christmas decorations and gifts; and sample gourmet seasonal treats in our food hall. Then as night falls we will gather together to see the switching on of the Christmas tree lights and join in some carol singing.

As the event will raise money for the popular Fulham children’s charity Ray’s Playhouse, we will be pushing out the boat to make it a magical event for children too. On the Green itself little ones can visit Santa’s Grotto; have their faces painted; get creative in the children’s craft area run by Ray’s Playhouse and sing along with the carols.

As Parson’s Green itself bustles with festive spirit, Mission Hall will be a hive of stalls – offering both established local brands and some up-and-coming cottage industries. The Duke on the Green will be providing refreshments and at the Church there will be a food collection point. We hope there will be something for everyone at this classic Christmas family afternoon out.
